I have benefitted greatly from other brothers and sisters in the Lord who have started theological centers, ministries, websites, podcasts, newsletters, etc. These serve as both an expression of appreciation and a recommendation for readers, but it does not imply affiliation with them nor their endorsement of the content on my site. All descriptions are taken from the respective platforms. I heartily recommend them all!
The Center for Baptist Renewal is a group of orthodox, evangelical Baptists committed to retrieving the beliefs and practices of the historic Christian church for the sake of contemporary Baptist renewal. The work of CBR is grounded in an affirmation of the supremacy of Scripture and guided by historic Baptist distinctives. While we do not require a specific confessional subscription of our board and fellows, we revere the rich heritage of Baptist confessions of faith, such as the Second London Baptist Confession of Faith (1677/89) and the Orthodox Creed (1678) in the seventeenth century, and the Baptist Faith & Message (2000) in the twenty-first.
The London Lyceum seeks to foster serious thinking for a serious church by creating an intellectual culture of charity, curiosity, critical thinking, and cheerful confessionalism. We seek to embody the meekness of wisdom found in James 3:17, pursuing thinking that is pure, peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.
Spiritual Theology is the speaking and writing ministry/home for Jeff Medders. Here you will find his monthly newsletter, articles, and sermons.
We are a small group of young Christians who have spent the past 15 years defending word count and nuance on the internet while working out what our faith looks like in public.
Whether it is arts, movies, literature, politics (yup, we go there), sexuality, or any other crevice of the human experience, we believe that the Gospel has something to say about it and that “something” really can be good news.
We take our cues from our boys C.S. Lewis and G.K. Chesterton, two of the most thoughtful Christians of the twentieth century. One of them wrote Mere Christianity and the other wrote Orthodoxy, and we like those books so much we stapled their names together and took it as our own.
The Center for Pastor Theologians exists to equip pastors to be theologians for today’s complex world.
Preaching and Pastoral Ministry
The Center for Preaching and Pastoral Leadership is part of the Centers’ Initiative at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Our center exists to equip and encourage pastors to lead healthy disciple-making churches for the glory of God around the world.
Practical Shepherding is a gospel-driven resource center for pastors and church leaders equipping them in essential, yet often overlooked, practical matters of pastoral ministry.
At 9Marks, we help pastors, future pastors, and church members see what a biblical church looks like, and to take practical steps for becoming one. Our goal is to see churches characterized by nine biblical marks of a healthy church.

Two Journeys (Andrew M. Davis)

Missional Pastor (Philip Crouse)
Insights (Samuel D. James)
Biblical Theology (Dr. Mitchell Chase)
Church Grammar (Brandon Smith)
The Church Grammar podcast engages theology and the church in a fresh way, centered on wide-ranging conversations with scholars and Bible teachers.
Credo Podcast (Credo Magazine)
At its core, Credo Magazine strives to be center on the gospel confessing the substitutionary death and historical resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ for the salvation of sinners. In doing so, Credo Magazine not only draws upon the historic creeds and confessions of the faith, but especially the great pillars of the Reformation: sola scriptura, souls Christus, sola gratia, sola fide, and soli Deo gloria. Our desire is to see biblically-grounded , Christ-exalting reformation and transformation in the church today.
We started the podcast for one main reason: our own church and academic context lacked serious thinking–especially from evangelical Baptists. Sometimes our own parishioners have even been suspicious of thinking in general (knowledge puffs up, after all). We wanted to help change that. But we also had a second reason. While confessional types (especially “1689ers”) often get a bad rap on the internet for being uncharitable and angry, we wanted to create a place for legitimate dialogue and debate among friends that could model intellectual charity, curiosity, and cheerfulness.
